Database admin steals 2.3M consumer records at Fidelity National subsidiary

Yikes 

Call it the case of hiring a fox to guard the hen house. A senior database administrator at a subsidiary of Fidelity National Information Services Inc. who was responsible for defining and enforcing data access rights at the company instead took data belonging to about 2.3 million consumers and sold it to a data broker.

The broker in turn sold a subset of the data to other marketing companies. The stolen data included names, addresses, birth dates, bank account and credit card information, the company said in a statement released today.
